Storm Relief for Blanca & Her Kids

Tropical Storm Harvey has left my dear friend, Blanca Morado, and her three young children displaced and and in an incredibly difficult situation. They were evacuated from their home, then evacuated from a friend's home only to be turned away from a shelter that was at capacity. Now they are staying with family but their area is about to be evacuated as well. Concerns for clean water and food are paramount as resources dwindle in this dire situation for Houston victims. Sending supplies is not possible at the moment because the infrastructure and roadways are shut down, and the rain keeps falling. Blanca is a Dundee Crown Class of '97 graduate, single mother and a U.S. Air Force Veteran. She and her children will need help rebuilding, when that process actually begins, but for now they are in a desperate situation. She has applied for FEMA but that process will certainly take an extraordinary amount of time and energy. Insurance may cover some of her losses but it will never be enough to completely rebuild their lives. ANY DONATION amount is so very much appreciated. If this donation fund makes anyone uncomfortable, please consider donating to the Red Cross.
